Le dessin de sculpteur

Abstract : For any sculptor, drawing often consists in making some preparatory sketches that prefigure the later three-dimensional work. However, drawing is not limited only to this preparatory function of the process of creation when sculpting. What is then the incidence of drawing on the work of the sculptor? We will study the work of different sculptors-draftsmen through the analysis of their operational modes, together with the work of other artists who practice drawing while doing the three-dimensional work. Even if it may seem timeless, this “poietic” approach will try to identify different uses of drawing in the sculptor’s methods, either exploration, documentation, prefiguration, drawing in space or as a parallel path to the sculptural work. Isn’t it drawing the very essence of the sculptor’s work, as a dematerialized practice of sculpting? This research is also based on the explicitation of my work as a sculptor and nourishes some reflection on the accompaniment to students and the application of the drawing stage in their learning processes.
